Great place to stay and have a lot of extra toiletries in case you forget anything!! :) The exterior was a bit obscure and under construction, but overall, great experience! The check in process was easy and convenient. The location is great! Right in the middle of Philly :)

Stayed for just one night 1/17/2016. Very friendly front desk personnel. Easy check in & out. The Hotel itself is 160 years old but you would never know it. Beautiful staircase greets you when you first walk in and a very inviting fireplace in the lobby. They have free Wi-Fi and a computer in the lobby so that you can...

We stayed January 17,18 and 19. The room (308) was comfortable, very very good bed, quiet and the bathroom was perfect. Breakfast was excellent with way above average coffee, eggs, waffles, bisquits, sausage gravy one day, bacon one day, oatmeal, cereal and plenty other good things...yum! Tea and cookies at 4! We did Independence Hall, etc, the art museum and...

This past weekend, we had an overnight trip to the city. I am so glad that we chose this hotel! The building, the lobby, our room, everything was gorgeous! The staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating. We were actually bummed when we had to leave on Monday because we had such a great time there. I would...

I had to travel to Philadelphia for business but was able to bring my 13 year old son who loves history and we programmed an extra one and a half days to check out Philadelphia and its historical sites. We arrived after midnight on a Thursday and there was nowhere to park in front of the hotel to unload. The...

Great Hotel! Staff were friendly and the room was really nice. We got a room on the first floor which was great for convenience but not so great for a view. Be sure to get a room not on the first floor if you are looking for a nicer view. The continental breakfast was really good and we liked the...

It's rare that every single staff member at a hotel would have such a warm, welcoming presence, but we found it at this hotel. My daughter left her camera in the room, which was found and promptly reported to us the day we checked out. Thanks for a very pleasant stay!

Having never stayed at a Best Western before I was not sure what to expect from this hotel and their staff.

The hotel is right in the middle of a great district with lots of bars and restaurants just steps away. The staff is fantastic giving the feeling that you are in a top boutique hotel. Parking is about 2 blocks away, but it was with a keycard that gave in out privileges. The room was tiny, but nicely appointed with...
